Budget, Budget, Budget
I really think that BUDGET is Husband's favorite word. *sigh*
"Babe, did you budget for that?" "Stacie, how much of your budget goes to gas?" "Honey, I think I'm going to add more to the grocery budget." "How much of the kids budget goes toward doctor's appointments?"
See? He's a man with our family's budget on his mind. *sigh*
In all fairness to him, I am not the best at budgeting, by any means. Sometimes, I fail horribly at it. Truth be told, if were up to me, our family would have no budget.
What my Husband has taught me is a valuable lesson that I AM STILL LEARNING:
- Savings: simply putting money aside without any "labels" attached.
- Home: whatever items I need for organization, home decor, and bigger cleaning purchases (like a new vacuum--hint, hint!). Things that will help me make the house a home.
- Gas: I know this may be a "strange" category, but with gas prices being what they are, and swim lessons 4 times a week, taking the kids back and forth to school--I need to have this money set aside.
- Personal: I get to choose.
